I was so excited. My brand-new copy of the complete season/series of My So-Called Life came tonight.
Gawd I loved that show. I was an internet activist pioneer for that show, on the listserv, lobbying against cancellation -- I even have a mix-tape "soundtrack" that someone on the list made for all of us.
I just stayed up way too late watching the first three episodes. A beautiful DVD set, gorgeously packaged (looks like a textbook, and the insert looks like a composition notebook), with just the right amount of commentary from the cast, crew and celebrity fans.
But you know what? The show's just not as good as I remember it. It's good, just not AS good...
